    Display Suddenly Changed

    Some setting must have been changed, as I can no longer right-click on the desktop, clicking on the start button has those options at the top (see photo) I've never seen before, Firefox no longer has a minimize/maximize button, windows explorer's Restore Down option doesn't work, the lower right of the task bar no longer has that desktop button, right -clicking on the taskbar does not give taskbar options, there is an arrow on the left of the taskbar (see photo) that I never saw before, and more.

    How do I get back to my normal desktop?

  2. Display resolution keeps changing

    Hi Rick,

    It might be caused by a faulty driver that's why your display resolution keeps changing. We
    suggest that you uninstall and reinstall the display driver, see steps below:

    • Press Windows key + X and click on
      Device Manager.
    • For graphics cards, expand the Display adapters category, right click your graphics card and select Uninstall.
    • Restart your PC and Windows will attempt to reinstall the driver.

    Let us know if you have any other questions.

    Laptop display question

    Confusing statement! You want to change the display on your laptop that died?

    Is that correct?

    How do you know its the display that's bad?

    Just google "how to change display on a acer 5745"

    Should get you to step by step instructions. But first make sure its the display that's bad
